9 Bold Predictions for the 2019 Fantasy Football Season

Who doesn’t love a bold predictions list? While most don’t pan out it is still fun to look at what analysts think is possible and who they have strong convictions over. I want to do this list to have a little fun and take some shots at what I think is possible by seasons end. I want to stress this point however. I AM NOT factoring in these bold predictions into my rankings or outlooks. While I do see these things as possibilities and think that they very well could come to fruition, I am not going to advise everyone to take them at face value. For instance if I say a WR could finish top 10 that doesn’t mean that I will have them ranked there. It will be close I am in the market of helping fantasy owners not hurting them with a prediction that could end up being off base. With that said lets have some fun and make some bold predictions!

Mid-round picks for the Championship Title!

1) They were on more ESPN league championship rosters than any other player.

 

2) None of them were average first round picks based off ESPN ADP last year, with McCaffrey coming in the highest with an ADP of 17.8 and Chubb the lowest with an ADP of 134.2.

 

Translation: League MVPs don’t need to come in the first round. Surely the first round is your best bet to get the type of difference maker who can carry your team, but once you get into the depths of the draft, rounds 4, 5, 6 and so on, don’t lose sight on the types of players who have the upside to deliver elite fantasy value if things go right for them.

Dalvin Cook for the win!

Dalvin Cook ended the 2018 season with 615 rushing yards, 4.6 yards per carry and 4 touchdowns. It wasn’t until week 12 when Cook reminded fantasy owners that he is an RB1. There are 3 important factors to consider here as you enter 2019 fantasy draft.

1)      The Vikings waited for Cook to become fully healthy which payed off (unlike Fournette).

2)      Mike Zimmer wants to make his team a run first offense, and it showed in the last few games.

3)      The last and most important fact is that there is no more Latavius Murray. So, what does that mean for Cook? Well for one, it means the Vikings management fully believes he is healthy enough to be a running back workhorse for the team. As a result, all the goal line work will fall to him, which will make him a consistent fantasy producer. The early rankings show that Cook is the RB12 off the draft board behind guys like James Connor, Joe Mixon, and even David Johnson. In my opinion, Cook will have a breakout season and should be taken only after Melvin Gordon. Cook is young and healthy, he is also on a team that will never see a stacked box, and most importantly no timeshare.

Cleveland Browns Hype?

Cleveland Browns Hype?

Now let’s talk about the newest Cleveland brown member, Odell Beckham Jr, who has a standalone value through his career of a WR1 all season whether it’s fantasy or real football. Beckham Jr. won’t have all the pressure solely focused on him because of Jarvis Laundry opposite of him, who is a back end WR2 in his own right. But let’s focus on Beckham Jr, the guy who last year came back from an injury and was a WR1/2. I believe numbers sometimes do lie and I think it’s the case for Beckham Jr, first he missed 4 games of the season and second and most important thing is that he was getting his targets from Eli Manning. I truly believe that Beckham Jr will put up solid numbers this season and will eclipse 1000 yards easily and accompany that with around 12 touchdowns. He should be the 3rd WR off the draft board following Deandre Hopkins and Devante Adams.
